Painting the Breaking Wave with Lizzie Connor
Breaking waves are created by moving swells (energy pulses), crosscurrents, backwash, tide, wind and water breaking over rocks…all have their own dynamics and beauty. This weekend workshop will center on the structure and contours of the breaking wave, learning how to create images of breaking waves that look natural and flowing, not mechanical. The ocean and waves are always in constant movement and turmoil. This workshop will be about developing an understanding of all these things and by doing some simple exercises learn how to create the correct appearance and flow to a breaking wave, using colour to create transparencies (i.e. how light works through water), depth, foam patterns and foam spray.
